    Power is coming into the system.

  • steven_fr986 Jun 26, 2009

    Is there a way to do that (or reset the TV) without the remote? My remote does not seem to be working

  • steven_fr986 Jun 26, 2009

    My remote control does not seem to work, nor does the up/downchannel on the tv work. Would it be helpful if I provided which lights on the circuit board are working? Also, is there another way to reset the TV?

Try Changing the input. It' on VIDEO and it's looking for a video input device, like a DVD player or VCR.

As far as I can see your power supply is damaged. This needs to be fixed at a local service location.

Hi,

HI, check the wall outlet to make sure that it is live.if you are using a surge protector, i would pull the unit from the protector and, try a wall outlet. sometimes the surge protector will short out and, it will seem that the TV is the issue. if the protector is fine and, the wall sockets are ok, this will confirm a more serious issue that concerns the power sector inside the unit.

You will need to replace the power supply board or, fly back assembly in this case.

the only thing to reset is have the tv unplugged and let it rest for about 10 minutes, allowing it to cool down,if power still wont do, your unit needs servicing, have the power checked for output voltages that goes to the horizontal deflection circuits, hope this help, thanks for using fixya!

The unit comes on using the power button as well as a remote and displays "Polariod" on scrfeen and then nothing else, no sound no picture?/


More than likely your power supply needs two electrolytic capacitors, 10MFD @ 450 WVDC. If you find the capacitors on the power module to the top of the metal enclosure inside the tv, they will probably appear to have swollen tops.

Volume at max and won't go down


This sounds like a common problem on these TVs. Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

Insignia tv will not powerup


Nothing at all? Does the screen seem to go from dark black to a lighter shade of black?

If the screen appears to stay on the darker shade of black then it is broken, and needs to be sent for repair. ( ie the screen isnt powering on when the tv is and there is nothing you can do without opening it.

You might try unplugging all cables and leaving it off with no power for a day This is in effect performing a factory reset.

and this may sound stupid and patronizing but is the TV being taken out of standby mode and actually switched on?

Check your cables and TV input settings.  Can you get to the on screen menu?  Does anything appear on the screen when the tv is on?

My Sanyo HT28745 28" HDTV clicks but doesn't turn on


I have had a similar problem with my tv, it has something to do with the power supply.Try unplugging your tv from the AC outlet. While unplugged from the power supply hold down the - volume control and then plug the tv back in while holding down the - volume control. It should bring up the service screen. If the screen turns on and is blank then it may need to be brought in for repairs.

If the screen does turn on, either blank or with the service menu, turn off the tv and unplug it from the power supply again. With it still unplugged hold down the power button on the tv and then replug in the tv. continue to hold down the power button until the tv displays a video signal on screen.

Emerson EWF2705, when pressing power it sounds like it is coming on but nothing happens


Hello DEBM,

 

The problem with your television appears to be in the high voltage power supply or the low voltage power supply. The set tries to come on but the shutdown circuitry turns the TV off. The shutdown circuit is a protective measure put into place to prevent overcurrent and overvoltage conditions by shutting down the TV when these conditions exist. If you do not have a background in electronics, might I suggest that you have a TV technician to come to your location and work on the TV.

 

I hope this helps

Thabk you,

Shuttle83
